graphite arm, graphite knuckle and rear hub, will give you more responsive and better in high traction condition..

if you less breakage, graphite c-hub will be better too..

but myself always stick with plastic c-hub...hehe

Yeah the stock plastic pieces have a lot of flex to them.
I am gonna try the graphite arms with the stock plastic c-hub this weekend. I'd rather break an a-arm than the c-hub.

I really want to run this car super hard but Im gonna drive it like a wuss until I feel confident in the car's durability. I will if I get aluminum.

Does the box the car is shipped in have a "FRAGILE" label on it?

That made me laugh. In all seriousness though, I really like the looks of the car.

Maybe you should get a T4.

I'm hopeful the same things that hardened the Tamiya will also work on the Yokomo. A sturdy bumper and aluminum c-hubs. With that combination the car was solid on American style "boards" tracks. I raced it 3 times at IIC which has wood barriers screwed into the sub-floor and never broke a thing.

I've been told to use plastic c-hubs on carpet, graphite on asphalt by the Yokomo guys. But I admit that I never run on carpet.

No I'm gonna stick with the BD7 thanks for the concern. I'd rather break stuff cause I suck at driving on carpet and drive a car that has plenty of steering. If I want a car that won't break and won't go around corners as fast ill buy a T4. So as of right now it goes BD7, TCXX, then....nope there is no and then.

For those tank commanders that are hating on the BD7 , it was designed as a rc race car. The T4 well.... Maybe the t stands for Tank.
